Parked in the campsite at oamaroo harbour. Watched blue penguins come out of the sea cross a road and then into the camp ground. They nested around our Campervan so we watched and heard them go out to sea the next morning. All exciting and free.

Booked at Top 10 - worth it - get a seat at water end of stands to view the beach.

We saw yellow-eyed and blue penguins. It was great. We also learned a bit about the history of Oamaru.

Did with them a City tour and saw Yellow Eyed and Blue Penguins. Driver knew a lot to tell about the old town and the animals - very kind.
